While Liverpool face Aston Villa at home tonight, the manager Brendan Rodgers has a must win game on his hand.
Under massive pressure from the fans who are desperate to see the Northern Irishman get sacked, Rodgers is going to face Tim Sherwood’s Aston Villa side in a do or die game which can determine his fate.
Amid, the speculation of Rodgers being under fire, a name that has been linked with the job is former Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp. Although, most of the rumours are made from the desperation of the fans to see the German in charge at Liverpool, replacing Brendan Rodgers.
Jurgen Klopp is now on a sabbatical after leaving signal Iduna Park in the summer and seems to enjoy his vacation.
Just in the past couple of weeks he’s been on holiday in Provence, France, been back to Germany to earn big bucks for speaking to business people, then been to Portugal to watch Sporting Lisbon (which seemed to be more than a coincidence) and then been back to Germany to attend the Oktoberfest.
He is enjoying his holiday with his wife, and also enjoying the beer, which he loves.
Amid all the speculations of Liverpool job, he was asked by Bild to which he replied “I have nothing to do with the Liverpool rumours,” meaning that he was on a personal night and so wouldn’t comment.
The comment is somewhat positive for Liverpool as he had the chance to rule it out but he did not. although, the positive is very much minor still for a Liverpool fan, it is a huge thing that the man they want an Anfield did not rule out the move.
Klopp was brilliant with Borussia Dortmund in his seven seasons at Signal Iduna Park winning Bundesliga twice, DFB Pokal once, DFB Supercup twice and also finished as runners-up in UEFA champions League 2012-13.
He was awarded German Football Manager of the Year twice and also was runners up in FIFA World Coach of the Year in 2013.
Klopp is massively popular among the fans for his passion on the sidelines, determination and working well with a weaker team making them world class. He temporarily broke Bayern’s domination in Germany and also made some world class talents reach their potentials like Robert Lewandowski, Mario Gotze, Mats Hummels, Shinji Kagawa, Nuri Sahin and many more.
Liverpool fans want the German badly and they started a campaign on Twitter for the last few weeks to their owner John Henry to bring Klopp to Anfield.
